In 2012, USAID through the Eurasia Foundation of Central Asia (EFCA) launched a two-year “Women`s Peace Banks” program to provide opportunities for women in the South of Kyrgyzstan in taking the lead in interethnic reconciliation and in promoting the role of women in peace building at the local level. The Program has been implemented in Osh and Jalal-Abad. During the program EFCA organized 16 Women’s Initiative Groups in Osh and Jalal-Abad that select social development projects proposed by local residents. EFCA provided small grants to the Initiative Groups and helped them find required co-financing for their projects from local authorities, private companies or other sources. This document is the performance evaluation of the project.

Working through the Development Credit Authority (DCA) USAID is providing portfolio guarantees to two Kyrgyz banks to increase access to loan capital for small and medium enterprises (SMEs), farmers and agricultural businesses in the Kyrgyz Republic. USAID is supporting two Kyrgyz banks to address this constraint by partially guaranteeing loans made to farmers and agricultural businesses such as processing, packaging, storage and logistics. USAID is supporting development of these businesses through the Agro Horizons project that will select agricultural value chains with the greatest opportunities for employment and competition.  Guarantees for loans to farmers and agribusinesses will be available nationwide with a heavy focus on Batken, Jalalabad, Naryn and Osh oblasts.
